Translated from German, developer Anbau Enterprises’ company name means “to add on to a building,” an appropriate sentiment in a city where each vacant lot serves as a foundation onto which a new piece of the future is built. And whether they were transforming the former InterContinental into the luxury residences that today make up 110 Central Park South or constructing Harsen House, the Upper West Side’s first LEED-certified residential building, Anbau has taken its responsibility to the city seriously.
“Every addition we make is building our urban fabric,” says Barbara van Beuren, one half of the husband-and-wife team that founded Anbau. “It’s not about us; it’s about how a building interacts in an urban context.” Nowhere is that worldview more apparent than at their latest development, Citizen, at 124 West 23rd Street—a 16-story condominium that fits seamlessly into a historic neighborhood that has undergone a historic reinvention.
To promote the significant benefits of investment and development for the real estate community in the district, the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Inprovement District (BID) held its second annual forum Flatiron: Where Then Meets Now – Retail and Residential Development in Flatiron. The two hour free event attracted nearly 100 brokers and other industry members to network, hear from property experts and learn about the Flatiron Partnership at Almont Restaurant, the event host and sponsor. The group of distinguished panelists included Stephen Glascock, President of Anbau Enterprises, Inc., the developer of Citizen condominium.
